Three police personnel were injured after a group of four men attacked them in a private hospital in Gurugram, officials said on Wednesday. A PTI report quoted sources that said the accused had reached the hospital to take some medicines but refused to pay for them. Following this, a fight broke out between them and the police were called.
According to the police the incident took place around 11 pm on Tuesday after the four men had created a ruckus at Jeevan Hospital in Rithoj village, the report further stated. After getting information, three police officers of ERV 235 reached the spot and questioned the four, who got furious. They first tried to run over the cops with their car and then thrashed them and fled away in their vehicle, they said. The injured police officers have been identified as head constable Anil Kumar and constables Mohit and Deepak who were posted at ERV 235. All three were admitted to Medanta hospital late at night and the condition of head constable Anil Kumar is reportedly critical, said police.
